White trash bags for Donate help to keep them separate from black bags for trash

Many people have trouble letting go of things…I realize this, but I also realize that there are times that it helps to think of others and that can help you to “release” an item.

Holding on to “things” that are packed in a box in the basement, or sitting on the back of that top shelf in your family room (where you can’t even see it) and gathering dust are not helping you in any way.

Look at that item (as you dig it out of those hiding places and it sees the light of day for the first time in years) and decide:

1) Am I using it?
2) Is it making this space a better place?
3) Can I enjoy it where it is?
4) Do I like it?

If you can’t answer “yes” to all of these, then maybe it is time to pass that item onto someone who will use it, will enjoy it and likes it.

  1. I am doing so, so much better in this regard. I prefer the thought of my stuff being used by someone who wants it rather than sitting around cluttering up my house and never being used.

    It feels great to donate now, rather than the scary thing it used to be.
